KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas City, Kansas, man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing the mother of his child.

The Wyandotte County prosecutor’s office says 27-year-old Lee Williams won’t be eligible for parole for 25 years under the sentence imposed Monday for first-degree murder. Jurors convicted him in May of shooting 20-year-old Ty’Shai Carvin to death in 2013 in front of the couple’s 2-year-old son. He also was convicted of being a felon in possession of a handgun because he had a previous robbery conviction.

After the shooting, Williams boarded a bus and was arrested Detroit while trying to enter Canada using a fake identification.

Williams also had his 44 month probation revoked for a previous drug conviction.
